To help ensure they're ready, several hundred rising sixth-graders are attending the middle school’s Project Cooperation camp, an annual opportunity for them to see and be reminded about the importance of working cooperatively and building leadership skills while increasing their self-esteem as they begin to successfully navigate the new world of classes, teachers and responsibilities.

OTISVILLE K-KIDS DONATE $600 TO PETS ALIVE OF MIDDLETOWN

Posted July 2 at 9:14am

The Kiwanis K-Kids of Otisville recently visited Pets Alive of Middletown to donate $600, the proceeds of their annual coin drive, to Mary Ann Bopp, Pets Alive’s development director.

 The visit included stuffing gift bags with cat toys to be given to prospective “furbaby” adoptive parents and a presentation of how to train a puppy by dog trainer Robin Markovits. They learned some helpful tips, too, when the roles of dog and trainer were played by students.

 The highlight of the trip was a visit to the cat house!
